The Manhattan was created as a rye cocktail, but nowadays you can find it made with bourbon as well. Whisky Advocate wanted to know: does one whiskey or the other make a better cocktail? We tasted a bourbon Manhattan and a rye Manhattan side-by-side, not knowing which was which, to find out.
If you’re interested in making whisky cocktails at home, you’ll need these bar tools and a few choice mixers.
